    Nadal is leading in the poll; I have to say I think he'd edge it out.

    Yes!! This thread is here finally. Johansson in embarrassing straights, easily. His GOAT form was the greatest GOAT form of all GOAT forms in the history of GOAT forms. Even USO2000 Safin (aka GOAT form OAT i,e, GOATFOAT) would have been spanked by this one (and was, really).

    By the way, he had a really weird ball toss, it used to make me laugh every time. Pretty good serve though.

    Johansson is possibly the worst slam winner of all time. This one is easy.

    If you think deleting this thread will increase the IQ of the forum, your own IQ needs some help. :)

    Anybody that wins a slam is a decent player in my book. It's not like you can win one by accident.

    Boy, this ranks so up there in pressing issues of the day.

    What relevance to the world of tennis.

    This has got to be the most suspenseful poll of all-time.

    Who needs AI polls, elections, or dumb stuff like this.

    It's this burning question that we all want to see played out, right?!??!?!?!?!?!?

    Which Johansson?? Joachim??
    If it is PimPim he would kill Nadal in 6x0, 6x3, 6x2.
    Not even a chance.
    That guy as talented as Federer, He was just injured too much.

    Yeah a guy who moves awful, has no backhand, who doesnt return well, has no variety or court smarts, has questionable fitness, and who cant even volley, would kill Nadal love, three, and two, LOL! Joachin Johansson makes Roddick look like one of the most complete players of all time by comparision. He is the essense of nothing but a serve and a forehand.

    The two best matches he ever played ended in a narrow 5 set win over a tenative and out of form Roddick who still should have won but botched a crucial break point, and a 4 set loss to a nearly 35 year old Agassi despite nearly 50 aces.

    Tomas Johansson would even give Nadal a tougher time than Joachim would.

    So that's why Pim Pim after not playing tennis for over a year beat Nadal in straights on an indoor HC? Is that a joke?

    So you are just agreeing with me.
    His career was only good for maybe 2,3 years had he played ,stayed healthy and developed to his max capacity and still playing these days, which means 7,8 years later, the history of the sport would have been different, but at least i am gonna say that He would tear Nadal in to pieces.

    Joachim Johansson was just a poor mans Roddick. He was owned by Roddick in juniors and couldnt even win a major junior title of any sorts. He was never going to be relevant to either the history of tennis nor Nadal.
